Women of North Devon, let’s step out together for Nightwalk 2022.

Immerse yourself in glorious surroundings, and support local people who desperately need your help by walking taller than the trees for local care.

Get your girls together, and join us for a 5.5km walk through the grounds of Castle Hill Estate, with beautiful lighting, enchanting entertainment, and a chance to make some amazing memories.

The last two years have been tough on you, on everyone. We have all been trying to get back to normal slowly, so we are delighted to be able to bring you another fabulous hospice event this year.

Your hospice nurses have tirelessly continued to care for those facing the end of their lives, still under the strictest of restrictions in order to keep our patients as safe as possible. If they are to reach everyone who needs them in the months ahead, your support is needed now.

Let’s do something wonderful together and create special memories, with this year's magical moonlit Nightwalk at a brand-new venue!

Every person is a story, and the ending matters. By taking part in Nightwalk, you will make sure local people don’t have to face their final days alone or in pain. A comfortable, dignified death is what everyone deserves. With the right care, a beautiful ending to your story is very much possible.

By signing up today, and raising vital sponsorship, you will provide a light in the dark for local patients and families going through the toughest times, right here in North Devon.

 

 Brand New Venue

Nightwalk is back with a brand new venue. A whimsical evening is planned for you at the enchanting Castle Hill Estate, Filleigh.

Situated on the southern edge of Exmoor in the rolling hills of North Devon, the beautiful Castle Hill gardens are this year's location for your magical evening. Your 2022 Nightwalk will take place within the 50 acres of historic Parkland set against the captivating light display projected onto the 18th Century Palladian Mansion House.

What’s included with your Nightwalk 2022 registration:

  • An exclusive walk around the beautifully lit gardens and woodland of Castle Hill at night, with music and whimsical entertainment throughout the route. 
  • A Nightwalk 2022 LED torch to show you the way on the night.
  • A hot drink and sweet treat to keep you warm on the evening.
  • A magical evening to make memories with those you are walking with

Raising Money

Your Nightwalk registration fee covers the cost of staging this memorable evening. It is the donations and sponsorship from Nightwalkers like you that will help care for local people and ensure that their final days are filled with dignity and peace, free from pain.

  • £42 supplies a patient on our Bedded Unit with oxygen for one day
  • £84 allows our Hospice to Home nurses to travel to see local patients in their own homes
  • £153 keeps our entire Bedded Unit running for an hour

It's so easy to raise money to support local families. When you register, you can choose to either:

SET UP AN ONLINE FUNDRAISING PAGE 

Simply click here to set up your Nightwalk 2022 Just Giving page. Send the link to your friends, family and colleagues using Facebook, Whatsapp, or email. You'll be amazed at how quickly you reach £50 or £100. Once you set up your Just Giving, we'll keep in touch with tips and support on how to raise as much as possible for local families.  

If you'd rather have a paper sponsor form, you can download one here.

MAKE A DONATION

If you would prefer to not ask for sponsorship or do any fundraising, you can make a £50 donation instead when registering. Many people prefer to do this, and it's really easy and straightforward.

Every pound raised by Nightwalkers like you will help ensure that local people facing the end of their life, or the loss of a loved one, do not have to do it alone.

 

Safety and Accessibility

 

We have tried our hardest to make Nightwalk accessible for all. There will be a shortened, fully accessible Nightwalk route, with more details to be confirmed. If you have any limited mobility or require a wheelchair or mobility scooter and have any questions about the route, please contact the Fundraising Team fundraising@northdevonhospice.org.uk.

 

Girls 11+

This year we are pleased to announce that we are opening Nightwalk to girls aged 11+, to enjoy the evening with family and friends and experience the magic of Nightwalk. All girls under the age of 18+ must be accompanied by an adult and walk with them on the evening.

 

Without our fantastic sponsors, we simply couldn't stage such a large-scale and magical event as Nightwalk. Thank you to all the local companies who have shown their support by sponsoring or offering gifts in kind, it really does make a difference to local people.

We can't wait to see you all there in September!

Special thanks to Castle Hill Estate
